Winning is not required.

So it's still easy enough.

When an enemy Arty "one shots" 2 of your teams' heavies and you're in a heavy tank, you know you're screwed.

A heavy tank should have armor and a big gun, if you don't have either then you're not.

not debating "ease" of completion, just the fact that it's made sensible commanders into lemmings.

 

the "no win req" is the problem.

For once WG have come up with a 'do-able' mission for almost everybody with at least a tier 8 tank. If it was 'only' on a win, it would be yet another of those almost 'elitist' missions only really available to a select few.

 

Plus, how many times have you had a really good game only to have your team lose, at least this time you are still rewarded for your efforts, and as far as I could tell yesterday, the battles I played were quite good and eventful, with more players pushing forward to attain the 2k needed, which is something this server surely needs!

It caused a very top heavy MM. Silly amounts of TDs as well. Should have had a crack at doing a need mission but thought of it too late.

Enjoy the mission.. then win the battle too.. Good Luck..

Missions can screw up win rates.

 

Look at the latest poll: "What motivates you to win a battle?"

 

Only 7% of respondents will play for a win in Complete Missions/Win contests.

 

So when you are seeing silly moves and odd behavior during battle that leads to losses, it is quite likely players are trying to complete their missions. Not necessarily playing to win.

 

A detriment to those players using Personal Tokens and on Premium Accounts. Waste of time and effort when not all 15 players on your team are playing for the same objective of winning. Too bad if you spent hard-earned money paying for Premium Account time and Personal Tokens.
